From the album Champions

Lyrics

WHEN BLACK AND WHITE TURNS TO GREEN AND GOLD



1. A LAND RICH IN DIVERSITY

SLANTS AND BLENDS , STRAINS AND HUES , VIBRANT , STRONG AND WARM

AND WE PRAY , THERE WILL COME A TIME

WHEN THEY CAN STAND AS ONE


CHORUS


WHEN BLACK AND WHITE TURNS TO GREEN AND GOLD

TO GRACE THE BEST STADIUMS ALL AROUND THE WORLD

THEN YOU WILL KNOW THEY COME FROM THAT FAIR LAND

THAT LIES BETWEEN THE TWO GREAT OCEAN SPANS


2.AND COMING FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD

AND WITH THE AFRICAN PEOPLE , FIND THEIR COMMON HOME

AND DIFFERENCES CAN BE OVERCOME

THROUGH PATIENCE , GRACE AND LOVE


CHORUS


3.AND LIVE AND WORK AND FUNCTION SIDE BY SIDE

AS WITH A SPORTS TEAM , THOROUGHLY UNIFIED

AND THROUGH GOD'S STRENGTH ENDEAVOUR AND TO QUEST

SO TO PASS THE TEST


CHORUS
